Musk's Boring Company gets approval for garage connected to underground tunnel

The Boring Company wants to deliver your car directly to your garage

The Boring Company wants to deliver your car directly to your garage

Elon Musk's Boring Company wants to help alleviate the problem by getting cars off the road altogether, and its latest development could make your driveway obsolete.

Yes, a auto elevator that would take your vehicle from your garage on street level to a below-ground chamber that connects to the Boring Company's growing tunnel network.

The Boring Company, Musk's cutely-named tunneling startup, has received permission to pursue the construction of a auto elevator connecting the garage of a small, single-story home it purchased in Hawthorne, Calif., to the fanciful high speed subterranean "Loop" transportation system it is constructing under the street in front of it.

A 2-mile test tunnel in Hawthorne, California (just south of the Los Angeles International Airport) is nearly complete, so this appears to be part of the next phase.

The test home was recently purchased by The Boring Company. Along with the 2-mile-long test tunnel outside Musk's SpaceX headquarters, The Boring Company is looking to build one that connects Dodger Stadium with western Los Angeles and another that runs from Chicago's O'Hare airport to downtown. It's not entirely clear what happens to your personal vehicle in this scenario, but during testing the cars will travel underground and up the shaft to an enclosed garage. Cars could be lowered down from the garage on an elevator inside the shaft, then loaded onto an electric "skate" to be transported at high speed.
